PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A nonpartisan good government group is encouraging voters to be prepared before heading to the polls for Rhode Island’s presidential primary.
John Marion of Common Cause says many polling places have been consolidated for Tuesday’s vote, so voters should make sure they know the location of their polling place, which may be different from where they voted in the past.
He reminds people that they must bring proper identification. Registered voters may cast a provisional ballot if they forget their ID. That ballot will be counted if their registration is verified.
Marion says high turnout is expected, and urges voters to avoid the early-morning and after-work rush if they can.
Voters can also apply for and cast an emergency ballot before 4 p.m. Monday.
